Elisse Joson was officially welcomed as the newest member of the “ASAP” girl group BBF5 on the musical variety show last Sunday, February 25.
She blended right in with other Maris Racal, Ylona Garcia, Kira Balinger, and Loisa Andalio. However, the absence of youngest member Andrea Brillantes couldn’t go unnoticed and a lot have since been wondering if Elisse actually replaced her.
In an interview with DJ Jaiho on “Hotspot”, Elisse revealed that she herself was surprised when first told that she will now be joining BFF5.
"Nagulat din ako ng nalaman ko. Alam ko before sinasabi lang ako sa prod sa 'ASAP',” said the “The Good Son” actress. "Beforehand, nakakasama ko na sila before sa 'ASAP', pero hindi naman sinasabi sa'kin sa part ako ng group or anything. Pero nakakasama ko silang lahat. Recently lang nasabi sa akin, ‘yung handler ko na every Sunday na akong mag-a-ASAP and then part na raw po ako ng BFF5."
Elisse also noted this isn’t the first change that has happened on the show to “fresh” things up. "Well, lagi naman sigurong may changes na mangyayari kasi sa 'ASAP' kasi laging may changes, laging may fresh na ginagawa gano’n.”
When asked if Andrea is still returning to the group, she answered, "Actually, wala akong alam sa part na ‘yun eh."
“ASAP” BBF5 was launched March of last year.
